For the third year in a row, The Christ Hospital has received the Outstanding Patient Experience Award from Healthgrades

For the third year in a row, The Christ Hospital has received the Outstanding Patient Experience Award from Healthgrades. This distinction places The Christ Hospital in the top 15 percent of hospitals in the nation for patient experience, fulfilling its mission to transform care by providing the finest patient experiences.

Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award™ recognizes hospitals for their outstanding performance in delivering a positive experience for patients during their hospital stay. Healthgrades evaluates patient experience performance by applying a scoring methodology to nine patient experience measures, using data collected from the 32-question survey of the hospital’s own patients. Hospitals in the top 15 percent with the highest overall patient experience scores are recognized as Outstanding Patient Experience Award recipients.

In 2019, 434 hospitals received the Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award, representing the top 15 percent of hospitals in the nation for patient experience. As part of the analysis, Healthgrades evaluated 3,449 hospitals that submitted at least 100 patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), covering admissions from January 2017 through December 2017 to identify hospital performance in this area.

The survey questions focus on patients’ perspectives of their care in the hospital, ranging from cleanliness and noise levels in patient rooms, doctor and nurse communication, medication and post-discharge instructions. The measure also include whether a patient would recommend the hospital to family and friends.

“This honor is especially significant as everyone in the organization can influence how our patients evaluate us. This reflects a commitment to the patient experience from all of our staff, whether their role is clinical, administrative, board member or volunteer,” said Arturo Polizzi, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network.
